Poem by Wilfrid Wilson Gibson on the Temperley Memorial Fountain, Market Place
See NY9363 : Plaque re Wilfrid Wilson Gibson, Georgian Poet, NY9363 : (Part of the) house where Wilfrid Wilson Gibson, Georgian Poet, was born and NY9364 : The Market Cross. The plaque reads "O! You who drink my cooling waters clear / Forget not the far hills from whence they flow / Where over fell and moorland year by year / Spring summer autumn winter come and go / With showerings and rain and storm and snow / Where over the green bents forever flow / The four free winds of heaven where time falls / In solitary places calm and slow / Where pipes the curlew and the plover calls / Beneath the open sky my waters spring / Beneath the clear sky welling fair and sweet / A draught of coolness for your thirst to bring / A sound of coolness in the busy street. Wilfrid Wilson Gibson Hexham Feb 1901".
